Making research and application in the field of regional/local labour market internationally visible

Every year, the members of the EN RLMM work on a common topic with the aim to further our approaches to labour market monitoring. At the beginning of the year, a Call for Papers is issued that Papers, including those presented at the Annual and European Day conferences are combined into a thematic Anthology. These have been issued by the EN RLMM since 2007 and are an important resource on contemporary labour market monitoring. Authors receive copies of that year’s Anthology.
